News That Will Drive You To Drink

Happy Hour News Briefs

This is one of those moments when you realize that the moral scolds on the right not only have no imagination, they have no self-awareness. Let’s zip ahead to the 30:45 mark on this interview with noted homophobe Peter LaBarbera as he is asked a question about the new Star Trek series that will feature the first same-sex couple in the franchise’s history:

“We have yet to see an ex-gay, a former homosexual prominently portrayed in Hollywood.”

You know, maybe it has something to do with, oh, you know, THERE ARE NO EX-GAYS. And as for Star Trek, the whole ethos of the series is optimism: somehow we survive the present and the future is bright. That might have something to do with it, Peter.
